While having dinner with a friend and former colleague tonight, he presented me with the following statement: “[W]e can both agree that Jon Corzine has been a bad governor.” I immediately disagreed with that statement. Predictably, he asked me to defend my position.
At the end of my answer, he seemed to change his mind on Corzine. And he wondered why the Corzine ’09 campaign had never made the arguments I suggested.
I wondered the same thing, too. I’m not an expert in campaign messaging or polling models or television ads…but I think Corzine has a compelling case to make — and I don’t think he’s making it.
